Boston Bound from the Author: David Venable. David Venable, a six-time Boston Marathon finisher, has completed nearly 50 marathon/half-marathon events. In the past decade he transitioned from a novice mid-pack finisher to a top 1% finisher at distances from the 10K to the marathon at major venues. With international marathon experience to running in the extremes of Death Valley, Venable has compiled excellent experience applicable for marathoners that seek improvement or need an extra push to achieve a life goal. Compelled to coach other runners to personal bests and/or Boston qualification(s), he has written Boston Bound. Over five years of research went into Boston Bound, where Venable has captured a balance of proven training techniques, personal experience, and strategic approaches for running a fast marathon, with an inspiring addition of motivational stories. Unlike the books from elite running/authors that fill the shelves today, Venable writes and provides guidance from a non-elite runner's point of view with the key focus to run your fastest marathon while being realistic with the balance of work and family commitments. This book is intended for all runners who have the vision and the desire to Run Their Fastest Marathon or qualify for the Boston Marathon and are searching for guidance to improve their performance in hopes of running at the most prestigious marathon in the world... Boston. Profits from the sale of this book will benefit (through donations via Goals That Give Inc.) selected organizations dedicated to fighting the battle against cancer.

Long Road To Boston from the Author: Mark Sutcliffe. What does it take to chase down a lifelong dream, even after you’ve failed three times? And why have thousands of people put the Boston Marathon at the top of their bucket list? Long Road to Boston combines the history of the world’s most coveted marathon with the personal journey of one ordinary runner who seeks to fulfill his ultimate amateur athletic goal. Tracing back to the marathon’s roots in Greek mythology and sharing the stories of the many colourful and inspiring characters who have crossed Boston’s finish line, the book explores why modern runners challenge themselves with such ambitious goals and revels in the reward of a persistent dream achieved. Since the first edition in 1897, more than 640,000 runners have travelled the hallowed path. The Boston Marathon isn’t just the oldest marathon in the world, but the most esteemed. Every year, thousands of runners across the planet try to meet its challenging qualifying times, dreaming of stepping into more than a century of history. Some make it, others fall short and try again. Since the devastating finish-line bombing in 2013, the reverence and demand for the Boston Marathon has only increased. As the founder and back-page columnist of iRun magazine and the host of its radio show and podcast, Mark Sutcliffe has interviewed hundreds of runners who have chased Boston. And over the course of more than five years and more than a dozen marathons, he too closed in on his qualifying time, failing repeatedly, for one reason or another, before finally earning a place in the 2015 edition.

Boston Strong from the Author: Casey Sherman. Veteran journalists Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge have written the definitive inside look at the Boston Marathon bombings with a unique, Boston-based account of the events that riveted the world. From the Tsarnaev brothers' years leading up to the act of terror to the bomb scene itself (which both authors witnessed first-hand within minutes of the blast), from the terrifying police shootout with the suspects to the ultimate capture of the younger brother, Boston Strong: A City's Triumph over Tragedy reports all the facts-and so much more. Based on months of intensive interviews, this is the first book to tell the entire story through the eyes of those who experienced it. From the cop first on the scene, to the detectives assigned to the manhunt, the authors provide a behind-the-scenes look at the investigation. More than a true-crime book, Boston Strong also tells the tragic but ultimately life-affirming story of the victims and their recoveries and gives voice to those who lost loved ones. With their extensive reporting, writing experience, and deep ties to the Boston area, Sherman and Wedge create the perfect match of story, place, and authors. If you're only going to read one book on this tragic but uplifting story, this is it.

Duel In The Sun from the Author: John Brant. The 1982 Boston Marathon was great theater: Two American runners, Alberto Salazar, a celebrated champion, and Dick Beardsley, a gutsy underdog, going at each other for just under 2 hours and 9 minutes. Neither man broke. The race merely came to a thrilling, shattering end, exacting such an enormous toll that neither man ever ran as well again. Beardsley, the most innocent of men, descended into felony drug addiction, and Salazar, the toughest of men, fell prey to depression. Exquisitely written and rich with human drama, Duel in the Sun brilliantly captures the mythic character of the most thrilling American marathon ever run--and the powerful forces of fate that drove these two athletes in the years afterward.
